to michele bachmann to alan west, are they really feeling the heat? are they seeing the ground shift under them so they're beginning to think the tea party wave has crested? >> well, look, democrats want to use these figures bachmann, steve king, alan west, because they're huge targets and they raise a ton of money. they say the most incendiary things and they get democrats fired up. now, joe walsh is in trouble. he's got a tough district in northern chicago. and tammy duckworth is a pretty good candidate with a pretty good personal story. i think republicans sort of have a wash that one away. but michele bachmann has raised and spent $16 million during this campaign. more than any house member than the speaker boehner. she's had a huge fund-raising advantage. same thing with alan west down in florida. $10 million. are they targets, good for fund-raising for democrats? but when it comes down to it in the house races when you're raising that kind of money presidential campaign money. obviously she was a candidate.

. then "washington journal." the family research council holds its value voters summit this weekend. michele bachmann and house majority leader eric cantor will speak. it will be aired on c-span 2 and c-span.org. >> people like to see where politicians' views have shifted over the years. and like to see how mitt romney was campaigning against welfare reform and against abortion. i think people really like to see how these politicians have devolved. there is an element that is a gotcha elements. there is also an element that this is incredibly interesting. >> i tried to think why he has changed so often and why he finds it so difficult to come down on one side of an issue. >> there is a governor named ron the lloyd h.. -- rod blagojevich. >> more with the buzzfeed "q & a."on c-span's >> mitt romney criticized president obama for his economic policy. he also talked about the recent deaths of four americans in libya. this is about 25 minutes.

see politicians like newt gingrich, like michele bachmann, like peter king, calling for investigations into muslim american community, and when mitt romney is asked how would you respond, how do you respond to michele bachmann's demand for investigations, he simply said this is not his campaign. this is not a way to lead, when you think of president bush, how he came out, say what you will about president bush's policies, but he did come out after 9/11 and repeated that we're not at war with muslims, this has consequences, republican party 89% white. lost people like my father who has seen it gone astray. >> in your father's distaste with the republican party become thick willingness to expand power. part of what i hear is if you're a small government, party, that ideology shouldn't restrict who wants to get married if are you a small government, have you a small government position. talk to me a little bit about how we see the role of a president in helping to bring about bipartisanship? you talk about the congress, you say there is a role for the president. >> a chapter in there abou

and that is why they are doing. michele bachmann the other day was criticizing president obama, ashleigh, for saying that obama can go to new york, and he can go to new york and has time for letterman, but he does not have time for benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel. and who is going to get you more votes? a tense meeting with benjamin netanyahu or go on letterman to get votes from that show? i think that the answer is cl r clear. >> the little box on the right-hand side of the screen is making news as well. i want to draw your attention, wolf, and the viewers to the box of the touchdown of the space shuttle "endeavour" flying this morning from kennedy space center making a stop for refueling and little as it goese final resting day in los angeles. this is the final trip, and the vistas are spectacular. we will take a break and talk more on the other side. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar.

and these fringe people were allowed to stay in the race so long that michelle bachmann wasn't chased out, it says that we all feel we're just saddled with this and when a bath mat should have been able to beat obama based on the polls and romney is looking like it's not it, i would be panicked more than just at the beginning of every month. i would never stop wearing depe depends. >> dave wood, beyond the strategy and the seeming lack thereof, the other thing i thought romney's comments betrayed were a really naive understanding of the arab world and also an incredibly vague foreign policy platform. rich whimson, romney's senior adviser on these matters gave an interview where he tried to outline some specifics and for me what that did was underscore how completely obscure and vague romney has been and how incapable he's been in terms of elucidating a foreign policy platform any way different from that of the president. >> yeah. i've talked to rich williams. he's a smart guy, but what bother med about this week was, the romney campaign's emphasis on returning to a strong america. and trying to po

things that michele bachmann and mitt romney can't seem to understand is the difference between the public and private approaches of this president. in public he's been relational and engaging, seeking dialogue with islamic nations, but in private he's been ruthless and aggressive launching relentless drone strikes and pursuing al qaeda with a zeal that borders on the obsessional. as john kerry said at the convention, ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than four years ago. but mitt romney is not only blind to the present, he also seems ignore rabbit of the past. islamic anger and unrest has plagued virtually every president since jimmy carter whether republican or democrat. 241 american servicemen were killed in 1983 when the marine barracks in beirut was bombed and ron 23458d rald reagan was president. al qaeda launched their first attacks on america during the clinton presidency. of course, the horrific attacks of 9/11 came under the presidency of george w. bush. but if you listen to mitt romney, everything that is wrong in the world can be blamed on the current presid

"led the honeymoon commence." it is fun to have this levy elephant. this is one thing that drives me nuts. bloomberg and the city council voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks. you have bloomberg floating down as mary compensating "drop it, chubs!" this is when donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying "you had me at i don't care about poor pepole." "we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well."
